2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
From the bottle at SAVOR 2011. Served in a goblet.
ours a slightly-cloudy peach color with a small white head and a few spots of lacing on the way down. The nose brings peach character that is reminiscent of a Jolly Rancher. Very artificial. The taste is the same way, except it tastes like artificial sweetener as well. Too sweet and that’s in a bad way. Not a fan at all.

Hazed caramel pour with off white head and lace. Huge peach with a side of spice. Peach without the sweet on the flavor. Thin and watery but nice and fruity.

12oz. Bottle: Aroma of peach, sugar, and slight wheat. Poured a muddy amber/brown/orange in color with a small, off-white head that diminished but lasted throughout as a film on top of the beer. Very cloudy. Sparkling. Full of tiny, small, medium, and large-sized particles throughout. Flavor is medium sweet. Tastes of peaches, wheat, and apricot. Medium body. Tingly texture. Average to lively carbonation. Medium sweet, peach and light apricot finish.

12 oz. bottle from Hayduke. He, Rick, and I enjoyed it together via facebook chat. This poured a dingy golden and was hazy with suspended yeast. An off white head was two fingers and left sticky and spotty lacing. The aroma was very sweet and was like canned peaches. The flavor brought out both wheat and peach. Some cloves were noted and they indicate some very nice balance between fruit and wheat. This was more bitter than expected with an unripe fruit bitterness. The finish brought out a vanilla like soft spice. Very nice.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy orange coloured body with a copper glow and a very thin, fast-dying head. Aroma of strong aromatic peaches, a lot of caster sugar, oranges, a touch of malt and some offputting spices at the end. Medium-bodied; Assertive fresh peaches at first with some malt and sugars following behind. Aftertaste shows some chocolate and perhaps nutty bitterness coming right after the main sweet and fruity flavours - odd indeed. Overall, a good beer in the nose, but the execution isn’t flawless and it has an overwhelming chocolate and malt character that doesn’t show well to me, especially in this category. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in McLean, Virginia on 15-April-2010, sampled at home in Washington on 06-May-2010.

Pours an orange color with a medium sized white head. Aroma is peaches, wheat, bubblegum. Flavor is malt, wheat, candy peaches. Relatively refreshing, but nothing to call home about here. If you like peaches, you’ll probably enjoy it enough.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: Pours a clouded, appropriately wheat-hued body with a wispy, but lasting, white head.
Smell: Predominately fruity but also fairly wheaten aroma with the bulk of the scent made up by ripe, juicy peaches. Aroma = Peaches > Wheat.
Taste: Slightly tangy malted wheat with a few chunks of honey-coated graham crackers and tiny hint of vanilla. The sweetness, thankfully, is nicely restrained. Of course, there’s a strong peach flavor with a touch of tartness to it, though not quite as forward as the aroma suggested. I detect a slight bitterness, though no real discernible hop flavors. Finishes rather dry with a faintly tart lingering peach flavor.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Drinkability: A fine, fruit-flavored wheat ale for a pint’s worth, particularly if you’re a peach aficionado. Though I can’t help but hold it aloft with a wink and declare it one for the la--HAHA, ah, that Ding. With only 7 reviews currently entered (over on BA), he’s already beaten me to that conclusion. Well, I still stand by my verdict -- Son of a Peach is one for the ladies! Which, now that I think about it, isn’t a half-bad name for a beer to begin with.

12oz bottle. Thick, murky orange with a minimal soapy head. Some floaties. Deep peach pie aroma. Pronounced peach juice taste, not that tart..more thick, sweet, and creamy. Really captures the essence of peaches and cream. Light tangy peach-apricot in the aftertaste. Refreshing and quite unique. Some serious peach yogurt nuances.

This one poured a light orange with a white head. Aroma was pretty much all peach, interesting. Flavor was similar and a bit sweet bit overall a decent beer for this peach lover.
